This manual is the outcome of the project '3E'. It is a collection of non-formal methods for Youth Workers to promote the use of digital tools, critical thinking and civic engagement.

Aims of the tool

The main goals of the project were to foster participants' critical thinking, develop their awareness on advantages and disadvantages of digital tools, and encourage active participation in their local communities. By educating today's youth on how to use digital tools, as well as their benefits and drawbacks, the project had a great impact on the participants.
The participants achieved all of those outcomes victoriously and the aims that the project hoped for, were successfully fulfilled.

Description of the tool

The project "3E" aimed to provide the youth workers with skills and knowledge on pros and cons of digital tools, critical thinking and active engagement in community development. The acquisition of skills was certified by Youth Pass.
It consisted of 3 parts:
The 1st part was held in Thessaloniki from 9-19 of May 2022. 36 youth workers attended the TC where they developed the following competencies:
• Continuous critical thinking, both digital and non-digital, and the ability to make decisions;
• Critical attitude towards fake news and the huge amount of information circulating on the internet;
• Transmission of media so that young people are diligent and active agents of today's society;
• Connecting and networking responsibly in a broad context;
• Building young people into active citizens and gaining confidence in community development;
• Cultivating cultural consciousness.
In the 2nd part, the participants ran local workshops as outreach activities at their countries of origin, acting as multipliers.
The third part of the project was held in Thessaloniki at 12-17 December 2022. It was related to workshop presentations and manual creation. Thus the personal and professional development of the youth workers was presented.
In this seminar the participants unfolded their skills about the pros and cons of digital tools, cultivated their critical thinking and promoted their active participation in their local communities.
This manual is the result of the efforts of the participants to disseminate the project and ensure its sustainability. It is a collection of non-formal methods for Youth Workers to promote Use of digital tools, Critical thinking and Active engagement. During the implementation we searched for the best tools, which we tested during the time we spent all together in Greece, and also in our follow up projects at home. We are eager to share the findings of our work with other youth workers across Europe and to use these techniques to new activities with youth in upcoming initiatives dealing with the same issue. Let's participate and influence our communities Together!
In this manual you will find the basic knowledge and different ideas for workshops and activities that have been shared during the "3E" Youth mobilities.
Welcome to the 3E manual!
